Driving on interstate and car jerks and then shuts off ! cars swerve around to avoid hitting me. Thank god! I could start the car back up to get off the road all I could do was cry and pray that no one hit me in the back! that someone would help me to the side of the road! that I would see my children again! called the tow truck and sat in my because I was not prepared to play frogger with my life! googling a how to. Unfortunately, for me there was no option. What really, made me mad was that this was a known problem and others have had this situation! the manufactuer has not addressed this faulty problem!

While on the highway doing 75 mph, my 2013 Avenger immediately dropped to 40 mph. It felt like a car had re ended me, after dropping to 40, my car lost all power. My rpms went to 0, and I had no control while steering. It left me stranded for 45 minutes and suddenly turned back on. This has happened 3 times already. Also, before I had the dealership disconnect my horn, it would randomly blare. Sitting in traffic and it would go off. Sometimes it would beep once, other times it would last anywhere from 2-10 minutes. Turning the car off wouldn't solve the problem, it would actually continue. The mechanics told me it was my tipm (total integrated power module) that caused this to happen, only seen in Chrysler models. This problem has been ongoing starting with my horn since Sep. 23rd, 2016.

The contact owns a 2013 Dodge Avenger. While driving various speeds, the accelerator pedal was depressed but the vehicle hesitated before moving forward. The failure recurred on numerous occasions. The electronic stability control warning indicator illuminated. The contact had to restart the vehicle to correct the failure. The vehicle was taken to a dealer where it was diagnosed that the electronic throttle control sensor needed to be replaced. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was notified. The failure mileage was 56,000.

I was driving from Arkansas to Texas and was approximately ten miles from my destination when the car pulled to the right on a narrow two lane highway hitting the approximately one foot tall concrete bride side. It was misting rain and the car kept pulling right and then started to go into a skid. I tried to steer to stop skidding and spun around into the ditch and rolled. Only the passenger side curtain air bags and the passenger seat airbag deployed. No airbags deployed on the driver side or from the dash or steering wheel. The vehicle sustained major damage to the front, sides and top. There had been prior warranty repair to the driver seat airbag by orr Dodge of searcy because the airbag system malfunction warning light had come on in the vehicle.
